President Donald Trump on Wednesday said he will “probably” deliver his Republican National Convention acceptance speech live from the White House after scrapping his plans to deliver the speech in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Trump giving his convention speech on the South Lawn is the clearest conceivable violation of the Hatch Act. 100s of White House staffers would be violating it, not to mention charges of criminal appropriation of Congressional funds for political purposes. https://t.co/10Y5THmqU8
